The Allen County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to consider new district boundaries for Commissioners and County Council at its meeting on December 22.

Citizens who would like to comment on the proposed boundaries can do so during the Board of Commissioners legislative session this Friday at 10 a.m. in the Council Courtroom of Citizens Square. Public comment will also be accepted by email at or by calling 449-7555.
